Hanhart has just introduced a new chronograph, a limited edition created as a companion for the true adventurer. The Primus Desert Pilot Dark presents itself as extremely robust and combines classic features of the watch manufacturer with a modern, distinctive design.
As unmistakable Hanhart trademark, the chronograph features the characteristic red pusher at the 4 o’clock position. You’ll also find a red highlight on the fluted bezel at 12 o’clock. The DLC-coated stainless steel case comes in a generous diameter of 44 mm and with a height of 16 mm and offers a water resistance of up to 10 atm. Its flexible lugs ensure excellent wearability on all wrist sizes.
Like the original Desert Pilot, the Primus Desert Pilot Dark also features a bicompax dial. Since the central seconds hand is reserved for the chronograph, the running seconds is placed on the sub-dial at the 9 o’clock position; at the 3 o’clock position, the chronograph’s minute counter found its home.
The sand-coloured dial is covered by a convex sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating. Hanhart has coated the numerals, hands and indexes with Super-LumiNova. Therefore, legibility can always be ensured, even in poor lighting conditions. And at the 6 o’clock position there is a small, unobtrusive date window.
Inside the Primus Desert Pilot Dark works a reliable mechanical chronograph movement. It is based on the Sellita SW510, offers high precision thanks to its 28,800 vibrations per hour while providing a power reserve of at least 48 hours. Since Hanhart has opted for a sapphire crystal case back, the movement is visible.
The Primus Desert Pilot Dark is delivered on a robust, sand-coloured textile strap and in combination with a utility knife – a Vulkanus Hornet, including a belt pouch. Equipped like this, the next adventure can come.
As already mentioned, the Hanhart Primus Desert Pilot Dark is a limited edition; only 100 of these watches will be produced.
